A Big Announcement
Hello Dear Readers,
It’s time for me to share an important change:
As of January 2020, Incandescent Tarot will no longer be operating as a full-time tarot business.
What does this mean? No more tarot readings, in-person or online, as well as some other shifts I’ll outline below.
So why this big change?
I’ve been running this business for 3 years and it’s been quite the magical journey, yet about six months ago I found the magic waning significantly. Blog posts were coming as slow as molasses, and my drive to market, promote, and be active on social media was almost nonexistent.
I’ve always loved reading for other people - to this day, it remains one of the few things that consistently energizes and inspires me - but, as any entrepreneur knows, running a business means you end up doing what you love about 10% of the time.
Although I love tarot, I found that making it my sole source of income was sapping it of its vitality and magic. Truth be told, I’m eager and excited to stretch my wings in a new direction and relieve tarot and spirituality of the pressures of being my professional identity.
I can always tell when I’m making a good decision by the feeling I get immediately after sharing it with someone close. When I first told my husband, I experienced a state of elation. Finally! This was what was weighing on my conscience and spirit.
And, with almost comical intensity, I found my inspiration rushing back. I had ideas for new podcast episodes! Blog posts! Newsletter topics! Tarot, spirituality, and intuition seemed exciting again.
In all honesty, this is the best part of my decision. I was feeling so disconnected from tarot and I can’t express how happy I am to find that my block was around creating a living out of it, not the act of sharing it with others.
Nothing has filled me with as much joy as seeing how tarot has lit up the lives of the people I’ve worked with. Sharing it as a practice, teaching it to others, and being invited into the process of so many special people in one-on-one readings has been a priceless gift.
You can still find me posting here on my website, sharing my card meanings and resources, and speaking about these topics on my podcast.
And now for the goodbyes
I’ll be phasing out services as follows:
In-Person readings, excluding pre-booked appointments, will stop on October 15th, 2019
Remote readings will stop on December 31st, 2019
Mentorships will stop meeting on December 31st, 2019
Events will stop on October 31st, 2019
Classes will stop December 2019
Weekly Forecasts will stop December 31, 2019
Needless to say, this is the last call for readings if you’ve been meaning to get one. I’m leaving space to offer occasional readings in the future if my inspiration/schedule allows, but that won’t be for quite some time.
What’s going to stay?
This website: I’ll continue to run incandescenttarot.com and keep up my card meaning dictionary, tarot spreads, and resources.
The blog: I’ll post occasional tarot reflections and more. If my newfound energy is any indication, I’ll be more active here than I’ve been recently!
The Newsletter: My more personal tarot musings and announcements will still go out here.
The Podcast: Open Magic will continue to be a space where I share about tarot, spirituality, and intuition.
A Parting Offering
My last offering as a professional reader will be my annual Year Ahead readings for 2020. These are my favorite thing that I create, and this year’s format will be the best yet: A full tarot reading with a card for each month and extras for the big themes in your life, I put my all into these beauties and will be opening orders up on November 1st - December 3rd.
Stay tuned for more announcements
I’ll be posting more here about the ins-and-outs of this change and sharing my experience throughout. For now, thank you so much for reading along and for all your support: Whether you’re a casual reader of this site, a podcast fan, client, or general well-wisher, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the energy you’ve brought to Incandescent Tarot. I can feel it, and I’m so grateful and honored to have been a part of your tarot experience.
